Algae

Green

slick fluid skating the lake, punctured by frog legs barely caught in camera shutter before slamming lily pad down

Bitter

Smell of nature’s decay, multitudinous bacteria forming colonies finally visible to the eye, watering upon growing nearer

Half-submerged log

Forced into the ecosystem, helpless and made colony home, one side completely covered in mossy residue eating away

Reclaimed

Inner tube left becomes new host, entire pond now home, brought back under nature’s control, visitors quickly abandon plans, cooler back in trunk, sunscreen scraped from nose.

Freedom.
